;) Try Searching the help file for System Info Macros : @DesktopHeight, @DesktopWidth, @DesktopDepth and @DesktopRefresh. I personally recommend to read the Help-File thoroughly.

For multiple displays you might also want to try:

If Not IsDeclared("SM_VIRTUALWIDTH") Then Global Const $SM_VIRTUALWIDTH = 78
If Not IsDeclared("SM_VIRTUALHEIGHT") Then Global Const $SM_VIRTUALHEIGHT = 79
$VirtualDesktopWidth = DLLCall("user32.dll", "int", "GetSystemMetrics", "int", $SM_VIRTUALWIDTH)
$VirtualDesktopWidth = $VirtualDesktopWidth[0]
$VirtualDesktopHeight = DLLCall("user32.dll", "int", "GetSystemMetrics", "int", $SM_VIRTUALHEIGHT)
$VirtualDesktopHeight = $VirtualDesktopHeight[0]

get work area returns the desktop area accounting for Taskbar. By looking at the returned numbers you can tell if the Taskbar is on top bottom left or right of the desktop. But taskbar is tricky. Work area is ignored unless the taskbar is set to stay on top or at least AutoHide is disabled. It's good to avoid setting Left and Top to 0 when the Taskbar is on the top of the screen. Users get annoyed when the caption bar is hidden underneath the Taskbar. ;)

      Hello, and good day
      Im trying to make a sentence autocompleter so that when you type certain words (or commands) the scripts, and im in need of help/pointers
      That is what i have at the time and the issues i have currently is that:
      - I cant find an easy way to reset the counter to 0 in case a different letter from those are pressed ( tried NOT _ispressed but i think i got it wrong)
      -Is there another way to detect the key press that _ispressed? (i couldnt find it so far), since i feel like it is too clunky ( although maybe that is just me and my way to code)
      - for some reason the hex code (6F) for the / (divide nume pad) isnt working for me
      Im thinking of making a text file with some words to use them as variables/comparations  (so that at least removes the need of a variable for the words in the script) and make the script make a temporal text file to save the input and then compare it with the other one. But i dont know if that is a good approach.
      Thanks for your time and patience.

      Hey everyone,
      I've been messing around with some new things and adlibs look extremely useful/interesting, however, I can't seem to get it to work.. Here's what I have
      HotKeySet("{F1}", "_Exit") $qCount = 1 Global $_Timer AdlibRegister($_Timer, 1000) AdlibUnRegister($_Timer) While 1 SoundPlay(@WindowsDir & "\media\tada.wav", 1) $qCount += 1 ToolTip('"Tada" has been played ' & $qCount & " times",200,200) WEnd Func _Timer() Local Static $iCount += 1 ConsoleWrite($iCount) If $iCount = 20 Then ConsoleWrite("iCount is at " & $iCount) EndFunc Func _Exit() Exit EndFunc Basically I want it to call the _Timer function but it doesn't seem to work :/ any ideas?

      Try to find a solution for help files to my autoit executable.
      Its installed from simple XP-POS cash computers to desktop with windows 7, 8, 10.
      The compiled AutoIt program itself work everywhere, but the help file??
      I need a help file called from from the program and I don't really know what working best in all OS platforms.
      1. A wordfile is helpful enough, but word is not installed everywhere.
      2. RTF is very big files with pictures.
      3. I could save it as pdf, but not all have it either.
      4. Tried  .MHT file, but downside is browser could cover hole screen if browser closed this way. I have not found any way to resize it to specific size when open up.
      5. Use of IE.au3 lib. Well it could open mht files ,but always got question about use it as default browser or not. Think this also make IE browser lose control so I could not resize.
      6. Look at making a  .CHM file, but I don't think its the future do use that format. (.hlp is no no and old)

      Any tips of do it in autoit or make a call to open up in some nice format working everywhere.
